    While MZM Legal remains highly regarded in its initial core specialisms of white-collar criminal defence and compliance work, it has diversified its offering in recent years and today ranks among the leading postmillennial full-service law firms in India. The firm is a member of the Roxin Alliance – the international association of white-collar crime law firms – and maintains strong working relationships with a number of national and international law firms. The firm worked to grow this network over the past year and can now offer clients the benefit of its insights in the local markets of Ahmedabad, Chandigarh, Chennai, Goa and Kolkata, as well as Dubai, Durban, London and Munich, on top of its “impressive” presence in Mumbai and Delhi.

    The firm has been retained by civil and corporate law firm SM & Associates for business crime defence and dispute resolution advisory assistance, and has also assisted noted foreign law firms – including Foley & Lardner, Schönherr Rechtsanwälte and Roxin Rechtsanwalte – representing overseas parent companies of Indian subsidiaries.

    PEOPLE & PRACTICES
